Not sure what to say?

My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time, and I am so sorry for your loss. I remember when Bobby and I were growing up together. I was I always so impressed with how he listened to the things that his Father was teaching him. One of those Walt sayings I never forgot… “Keep your eyes and ears open, your mouth shut, you just might learn something”. We never could fool that man for a minute. He was always a step ahead of us! Those were some good times, Bobby.

So sorry for your loss. The pictures brought back some good memories from my childhood when I spent time hanging out with you guys.My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I will miss you so much Daddy. I know it will take a long time to feel better if at all possible. You are, was, and always be.... My heart. My world.. I love you Daddy....

The pictures are amazing. They bring back so many wonderful memories of hanging out with you guys in Happy Valley. We wish you family all the best in this difficult time. Love, Rose Clark and family

My heart breaks for all the family, tears fall from my eyes at all the memories from the pictures. I know God has recieved another angel. Love you uncle Walter. Margaret Hughes Lusk

So sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you. God bless your family.
